A steep climb to the top of Fernhill for a stunning view of Lake Esplanade.
The loop takes about 3 to 4 hours.

    The trail was undergoing a revamp at the time I was there so will probably be different and better when you ride it. You should definitely go up the gondola rather than try to ride up from downtown. It's a trail with a lot of potential. Great views up top.
